I was born, grew up & educated in Glasgow. Following training at Glasgow School of Art I taught in schools in Aberdeenshire , Glasgow & Fife moving to the East Neuk in 1972. In 1989 I left teaching to paint full time. With my wife Lesley we set up the Courtyard Gallery in Crail 1973- 2001.I paint landscape & still-life in acrylic, water-colour & pen & ink wash. I have exhibited widely in the UK with many solo shows as well as group shows & mixed exhibitions.
